Situation Room

Hypothetical: On one given day, a former politician admits to an affair, and Russia invades Georgia. No, the other Georgia. You own a Situation Room. What would you talk about first?

Okay, okay, you're right. You'd talk about the affair for the first five minutes, then get back to the goddamned war brewing in the Caucasus. You have a point.

But if you'd spend the first half-hour on the affair, then read aloud the politician's statement, then go to a press conference of a different politician (actually running for something) talking about energy policy just to see if a reporter asks a question about this random douchebag's affair*, all the while casually mentioning the tanks rolling through Georgia without actually addressing the story... you're Wolf Blitzer, and you're a useless prick.

* How to phrase the question: "Yes, Senator McCain. Doesn't fuel efficiency hold a greater potential to reduce oil demand than offshore drilling holds to increase worldwide supply, and if so, what do you have to say about John Edwards screwing a campaign staffer in 2006?"
